Banana Surgery

posted in: Relationships, Games | 0

Split the group up into smaller groups of two or three, and give each group a banana, cutting board and plastic knife.  Each group should cut the banana into 4 or 5 equal sized pieces (don’t tell them what the next steps are at this point).

Then hand out banana surgery kits – pins, string, sticky tape, tooth picks, rubber bands etc.  The goal is for each group to reassemble the banana.

The lesson from the game is that some things (relationships, trust, reputation, bananas!) are easy to break but more difficult to put back together.

Surgery props such as masks and gloves could also be used if available.
